Good morning and welcome to Fox News First. Here’s what you need to know as you start your day ‘God’ left out of Biden’s National Day of Prayer proclamation Both former presidents Barack Obama and Donald Trump mentioned “God” in their National Day of Prayer proclamations, but Biden’s proclamation never mentions God, only Americans’ “many religions and belief systems” and the “power of prayer.” Video “Throughout our history, Americans of many religions and belief systems have turned to prayer for strength, hope and guidance,” Biden’s proclamation reads. “Prayer has nourished countless souls and powered moral movements – including essential fights against racial injustice, child labor and infringement on the rights of disabled Americans. Prayer is also a daily practice for many, whether it is to ask for help or strength, or to give thanks over blessings bestowed.” Meanwhile, Trump’s 2017 proclamation mentioned God five times, his 2018 proclamation mentioned God five times, his 2019 proclamation mentioned God seven times and his 2020 proclamation mentioned God 11 times. While the proclamation itself didn’t include “God,” Biden’s remarks for the occasion did say the coronavirus vaccine was developed “by the grace of God.” CLICK HERE FOR MORE ON OUR TOP STORY ….
